Return Details

Returns to original departure point
This 3-hour sandboarding experience meets at the International SandSnow School in Oasis Huacachina, Ica. Your meeting time is dependent on whether you chose the early morning or afternoon departure option.

The first hour of this tour takes place at the school. Test equipment to find the right stuff for you, and listen to a short introduction from the school’s staff. Afterward, your instructor takes you out to the small dunes in the area for a lesson. Here you can also get a feel for how different the sand feels from snow.

Once everyone feels up to it, take a buggy to some of the biggest dunes in the desert. Your instructor lets you ride down the dunes on your board. More experienced boarders can even try to catch some air. Pictures and videos are taken while you’re practicing your skills.

Go back to the school, turn in your equipment, and watch some of the videos of other boarders before heading back home or to your hotel.

This is a once in a lifetime kind of experience. The staff was professional and patient, and the dunebuggy driver was crazy! It was all perfect.

I know there are lots of "Sandboarding" in Huacachina but most of them wouldn't let you stand up on the board as they don't provide professional snowboard equipment. Sand Snow School aka Sandingboarding Peru provide you the equipment and instruction to help you get the full experience. Jhonny was our tour guide who not only gives me a lot of advice helping me to switch from Snowboarding to Sandboarding, but also did a great job in getting us some awesome video and photos for the gram! Definitely recommended

One of the best experiences ever! We had a professional snowboard teacher who helped us choose the most suitable equipment and later gave us first insights into snowboarding. A sand buggy took us to various sand dunes to practice. The views were amazing and the experience unforgettable!
Awesome instructor and experience...

Awesome instructor and experience! It starts on a smaller hill nearby that you hike up yourself wearing normal snowboard boots. Once you get the hang of it, you jump into a buggy with other people who are riding different boards the laying down kind for a thrilling ride out to bigger hills. We tried 3 or 4 large hills, took a few spills and inevitably got sand everywhere, watched the sunset, and had a lot of laughs! The ride back to Huacachina was another thrilling ride! They immediately share the photos and videos so you have nice memories of the experience without needing to get your phone or camera all sandy!

The best time of my life! The tour guide was very young but knowledgeable. We first practiced on a tiny hill and then were transferred to giant hills via dune buggy. The ride alone was so much fun! Ample time to sand board and the guide was very patient.
